The duck-billed, crested lambeosaurine shows that a diverse array of dinos lived in the warmer but still harsh Arctic 70 million years ago
Research that had been kept secret for years that captured a fossilized snapshot of the day nearly 66 million years ago when an asteroid hit Earth, wiping out nearly all life on the planet, including the dinosaurs, has finally been released, shocking the scientific community.
Two studies agree that ancient eruptions likely played a supporting role in the mass extinction. But the devil is still in the details.
A new species of oviraptorosaur has been unearthed in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia.
When the dinosaur-killing asteroid collided with Earth more than 65 million years ago, it did not go gently into that good night. Rather, it blasted a nearly mile-high tsunami through the Gulf of Mexico that caused chaos throughout the world’s oceans, new research finds.
The odd animal, named Jinguofortis perplexus, displays an unusual mosaic of bird and dinosaur features.
Paleontologists from Russia have described a new dinosaur, the Volgatitan. Seven of its fossilized vertebrae, buried in the ground for about 130 million years, were found on the banks of the Volga, not far from the village of Slantsevy Rudnik, five kilometers from Ulyanovsk. The study has been published in the latest issue of Biological Communications.
Dinosaurs could potentially walk among us in real life soon as the paleontologist who inspired the original Jurassic Park movie has announced a research project to bring the extinct creatures back to life. Dr. Jack Horner says scientists are only 5to 10 years away from genetically engineering dinosaurs into existence.
